Antiques and Adat: The Changing Face of Pakaâ€™s Mini-museum, Kampung Benuk, Penrissen, Kuching
This paper is an account of recent developments at Paka's mini-museum, which culminated in the production of English text panels for its collection in March 2005. As it turned out, working on these text panels was a deeply instructive experience, one which shed more light on â€˜native curatorshipâ€™ and the character of the place than might have otherwise been possible. The development of the text panel project is given. An attempt to work through some of the theoretical and ethnographic issues that arose in the process. An exploration of these issues in relation to a broader range of literature on both Southeast Asia and the so-called â€˜non-Westernâ€™ or â€˜indigenousâ€™ museum. [Working Paper Series No. 11].
